What are the smallest and largest cells you can run?

The upper limit for particle size is 100 µm in diameter, which is the diameter of the nebulizer internal capillary. The largest cell type we have tested is 25 µm in diameter. The lower limit is defined not by size but by labeled epitope density. All particles are ionized in the plasma and expand like a gas to ~2 mm diameter at the plasma/cones interface. Therefore, particle detection is dependent entirely upon signal, not size.
